serial #20831, 22 LR, 25" 11-31 dated Springfield barrel with a bright excellent bore. The metal surfaces retain 93% arsenal blue finish with some tiny light oxidation spots on floorplate, a couple tiny spots of freckling on barrel, some silvering on the exposed edges, scattered light fading along the barreled action, band and front sight. The nickel steel bolt body is D.C. electric pencil numbered matching and it remains mostly bright with a tiny spot of light pitting on bolt handle, operational wear, light oxidation and freckling. The pistolgrip walnut stock rates excellent retaining much of its armory oil finish with a few light dings and handling marks. There is a scope block on the receiver, another scope block on the barrel, the rifle is sighted with a Lyman peep sight and a 1903 style front blade sight. This rifle is listed in the Springfield Research Service Summary of D.C.M Rifle Sales 1922-1942 as being sold as an M1 NRA model, but it has many features of the M2 Model, so it was updated at some point to M2 standards. A very fine and desirable rifle for the military or rimfire collector. (208397-5) {C&R} (1200/1800) SOLD FOR $1,840.00
